Ruamrudee International School

Ruamrudee International School is a non-profit school owned and managed by the Redemptorist Fathers of Thailand. The school was founded in 1957 with the aim of providing quality education and fostering character development in a caring environment.

The Ruamrudee International School serves the international community of Bangkok and outlying suburbs. Enrolment averages 1,800 students from 35 nations, the majority Asian. Many students take Advanced Placement and/or the International Baccalaureate program in High School. More than 98 percent of graduates attend university.

The professional staff of 221 brings expertise from 20 nations, many holding advanced degrees. Ongoing professional development is a priority. Twenty-six percent of the staff have been with the school for ten years or more. The average length of stay is six years. Teachers are recruited mainly in the US.

In May 2002, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) extended its accreditation by another six-year term to the entire system of education from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The school is also accredited by the Thai Ministry of Education and the Association of Indian Universities.

The Ruamrudee International School's 27-acre campus is located 22 kilometers from downtown Bangkok. Facilities include 146 air-conditioned classrooms, 14 science labs, 10 computer labs, three libraries, two auditoriums, arts and drama rooms, four cafeterias, three playing fields, six covered gyms, two tennis courts, two swimming pools (25 m. and 50 m.), a performing arts center, and a church.

Student guidance and intervention are provided by trained psychologists and counselors. Specialists are available to support children with special needs and mild learning disabilities.

An Intensive English Program was started in 1996 to serve children with minimal or no English, so that they may, after one or two years of accelerated English study, cope as a student of the school. The program later became known as the Intensive Learning School and was awarded a license from the Thai Ministry of Education in October 2003. It is now a sister school to Ruamrudee IS. Students may benefit from a personalized educational experience and graduate either from this sister school or matriculate to Ruamrudee International School to complete a college preparatory program.
